book.jpgWhere Three Roads Meet: Novellas

(Houghton Mifflin)

John Barth

, a hero of the post-modern novel, talks about (among other things) heroism, the name "Fred" (which mysteriously recurs in all three of these novellas), the nature of the novella, and the nature of stories. He's so graceful that he even tells how a story can be a narrator, describing its own birth, middle, and old age. The essence of virtuosity: long live John Barth.
